The need to preempt Iran and export gas to Egypt was the reason the government gave to push through its controversial plan for Israel's natural gas. Now, this reason may no longer exist.08:52 31.08.15 | 1 comments
This doesn't pass the smell test. A discussion 25 years ago puts this meeting with Netanyahu in 1988. Presumably, given Netanyahu's known stance on the W/B, presumably the borders he so kindly drew on a paper napkin contained little circles of Palestinian autonomous bantustans. There is no indication that Israel under Netanyahu has given up territorial expansionism or that the USA is willing to pull the plug on its subsidization of a state which privileges people belonging to one religion or others. Until and unless that happens, Israel will continue its occupation and many Israelis will live in some la la land where non-Jews residing in 'Greater' Israel will somehow be transferred to somewhere else. That's how they hope to avoid the 'demographic nightmare'.
